Ind. Decisions - "Citing the U.S. Constitution and even the Bible, the 7th Circuit reversed a federal court in Indianapolis that said jurors could decide if Patricia Ann Fuller is or isn't a sister."

The 7th Circuit opinion yesterday in KEVIN B. MCCARTHY, et al. and LANGSENKAMP FAMILY APOSTOLATE, et al. v. PATRICIA ANN FULLER, et al. (ILB summary here) led to a post yesterday by Eugene Volokh headed "Canon Law in American Courts, or, Real Nun or Fake Nun?," and an AP story by Michael Tarm headed "A nun or not? Panel says it's not up to courts," which is the source of the heading to this post.
